Look Out For A Bat-Signal In The Sky In Celebration Of The Superhero’s 80th Birthday

By Malia Wooten

One of the greatest superheroes of all time celebrates his 80th birthday this year!

To mark the 80th anniversary of Batman, DC today unveiled plans for a global commemoration of the World’s Greatest Detective. Generations of fans across the globe will get to witness the iconic bat-signal as it illuminates the skies of various cities around the world!

Batman Day, on September 21, will spark festivities in major cities worldwide, alongside a wide array of fan celebrations including interactive photo opportunities, live music, food, games and more. Fans will even have the chance to race across the finish line in their favorite Caped Crusader attire in a series of 5K and 10K runs across the nation. And if you’re a fan of rollercoasters, you and your crew can celebrate #LongLiveTheBat at multiple Six Flags locations across North America this August with extended hours, exclusive Batman-themed experiences and special merchandise!

It’s probably no coincidence that the new Joker movie starring Joaquin Phoenix is set to release this October.

Exciting times ahead fellow comic lovers…

Long Live The Bat!
